Lose Control With Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Warm Blood”

Another taste of Emotion.

July 31, 2015

The thick synthesizers and wide expanses of ‘80s pop have been prominent in the mainstream for years. Artists rely on them when they want to make a big statement—see Taylor Swift’s 1989, which established Swift’s top 40 dominance, Nick Jonas’s “Jealous,” which proved Jonas could stand on his own, and the forthcoming Weeknd album, supposedly a major crossover effort from the singer. Add Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion to the list: Jepsen is putting out a new full-length next month, and she wants to show that she’s got more than just “Call Me Maybe.” Yesterday the singer shared “Warm Blood,” a sensual track that mixes burbling bass, subtle disco guitar, and a light dusting of itchy garage rhythms.
